They are my all time favorite animal, we have many bat items in our house, and even a bat skeleton in acetate. ( we bought it off of an educator) and we have had bat houses too!! I need to get some new ones asap. i have video I took of the Little Brown Bat species here in North Florida flying around my yard eating mosquitos with relish. Best natural bug control..ever

If you love bats you should join Bat Conservation International..its a pheonminal group that helps all species of bat world wide.

Here is a picture of a straw colored fruit bat at my local zoo..I was very lucky to snap the photo at that exact moment when he winked!!
